Down on the Street: Honda Civic EK

On a Sunday (about two weeks after I bought my Honda Civic) I was driving home from the Zoo with my son when a traffic jam started to emerge. Earlier I already spotted this nice Honda Civic EK with deep dished rims among the cars on the highway so I quickly changed lanes and used the opportunity of the slow traffic to grab a camera and take a photo of it:

Shortly after the jam disappeared so it’s just this single shot I could take.
While overtaking the EK I gave the guys a thumbs up and headed home.

Down on the Street: last Hungarian Honda Civic EK

This actually isn’t the last of the Honda Civics I spotted in Hungary, but it will be the last one I’ll share. Maybe it has been some sort of foreboding spotting that many Civics? Anyway, the others were, I guess, less interesting… Now this Honda Civic EK is interesting:

As you might have spotted it features ATS Cup rims and double exhaust pipes which are obviously not very JDMish. Correct: it actually is very Veedubbish (or VWish) and most of the tuned cars in Hungrary are done in this style. I even spotted and photographed a flushed Civic EG that made me think Honda could actually have been originating from Germany, but not worth sharing as the car was a WIP.

So what if the rims actually belong to a Golf? To be honest: the whole BBS style rims on JDM cars originated from the BMW scene, so why not a set of ATSes?

So what do you think about these mix and match styles?

Down on the Street: bumperless Civic EK

I spotted three different nicely tuned Civics on my way to work (and back) and every time I promised myself to take a picture of them. The first one is a four door Civic EF on kyusha mesh rims, the other a dark red/brown Civic Shuttle EE and the last one was this bumperless Civic EK:

Complete with bucketseats, rollcage and a big exhaust. As they are all parked every time on almost the same spot presumably they are owned by the same person. So reckon this as the first post out of three. ;)

Dunno if the owner follows the bumperless craze or it was actually a coincidence…
